The Tile & Stone Council of Northern California was founded in 1968 (as its predecessor the Northern California Ceramic Tile Industry) on behalf of the Tile, Terrazzo, Marble & Restoration Contractors Association (TTMRCA), of the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California to promote the proper use and installation of tile and stone. The combined experience of these union contractors represents decades of ceramic, porcelain, glass, terrazzo and natural stone installations across Northern California.
